The apartmentt was close to excellent.Spacious,nice interior,enough cuboard space and much better than any ordinary hotel room.We received very good and friendly service when we booked in.I did ask for a room high up ,but instead received room 102 right next to the security desk on the ground floor.They told us there were no rooms availablle higher up.For us it was a pity,because even though our apartment was very lovely,I think we would have enjoyed our 5 nights stay more if we had a apartment on one of the top floors.
Everything you need for self-catering is in the apartment.Lovely bed and linnen.Small but ,nice bathroom.There is a little lack of TLC,but it is small things like ,the wash basin tap falls close every time you open it and you have to hold it open with your hand.The rug-carpet in the lounge needs a very good wash.Small things that needs to be looked at.
The thing that makes room 102 less than excellent is the noise from the security desk at night.
The first night was very bad.We we woken by such a noise that we had to get up and ask them to be more quiet ,twice.They said they had a fire alarm problem.We understood that,but every night we could hear them talk.We got use to the noises after the third night,but it was stiil not nice.
The water taxi is R30 p/p per day and you can use the ticket the whole day.Very nice,friendly and fun.A very fine way to get to the waterfront.Just know you can only use the taxi intill 8`o`clock in the evening,but it is no problem.It is very easy to get a taxi between R30 and R50.
We would stay at the Canal Quays again,but only on one of the top floors.
